As far as you take me, that’s where I believe

The realm of soft delusions, floating on the leaves

On a distant shoreline, she waves her arms to me

As all the thought police, are closing in for sleep

The dilly dally, of my bright lit stay

The steam of my misfortunes

Has given me the power to be afraid

And in my mind I’m everyone

And in my mind

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It’s what you take that makes it right

Porcelina of the oceans blue

In the slipstream, of thoughtless thoughts

The light of all that’s good, the light of all that’s true

To the fringes gladly, I walk unadorned

With gods and their creations

With filth and disease

Porcelina, she waits for me there

With seashell hissing lullabyes

And whispers fathomed deep inside my own

Hidden thoughts and alibis

My secret thoughts come alive

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It’s what you take that makes it right

And in my mind I’m everyone

In my mind I’m everyone of you

You make it right

It’s all allright

You make it right

Porcelina of the oceans blue

I’ve faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
Appease you
The wind blows, and I know
I can’t go on digging roses from your grave
To linger on beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep and the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me
The coarse tide reflects the sky
And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
What I fear is lost here
The wind blows and I know
All you have to do is run away
And steal yourself from me
Become mystery to gaze into
You’re so cruel in all you do
But still I believe, I believe
You
So may you come with your own knives
You’ll never take me alive
With all the force of what is true
Is there nothing I can do?
I can’t go on digging roses from your grave
To linger on beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep and the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me
And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
I’ve face the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can’t keep

Additional Info:

From Zeitgeist track by track interview:

“This was one of the songs we had earmarked for Roy Thomas Baker to produce. As we later told Roy, we had heard all these stories about him being completely insane which turned out not to be true. He’s one of the most hard-working, aware and brilliant people we’ve ever worked with and we couldn’t wait to hear what he did with that song.” Billy Corgan

“For me that track is all about Roy–the way he produced, that drum sound. Roy doesn’t produce songs; he produces moments. We were constantly trying our best to put a smile on Roy’s face.” Jimmy Chamberlin


Shot down I stood
Withstood my neighborhood
I got it wrong
But I could
Follow love lest I learn
It’s light
To bring the light
I fought with all my might, with light
Oh bring the light
Light, bring the light
I never felt so good and right
But tonight you’ll never need another sound
Oh, bring the light
Bring the light to me
Here and gone oh I trust
You’d spit upon my dust
And mix my ash with your blood
A son of god you know you must arrive
In the light
Bring the light, let’s bring the light
Light, oh bring the light
Light, bring the light
It’s yours not mine
If you just want to survive
Go grab a glimpse of any star in heaven’s high
I never felt so real and loved and alive
No shadows follow me unsung
In the light, bring the light to me
A flower song, clear and bright
Is it wrong, in neon white?
To insist you are mine
Standing dumb in the light
Bring the light
Oh, bring the light
Bring the light!
Light, bring the light
I never felt so real and right and alive
Don’t let them steal from you what’s yours by right
Light, bring the light
You know there comes a place and time
You can’t deny
With every movement shadows cast and align
Bring the light, bring the light
Bring the light let’s bring the light
Light, bring the light

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed

We will never be the same

The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe

That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain

We’re not the same, we’re different tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

And you know you’re never sure

But you’re sure you could be right

If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade in your city by the lake

The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe

In the resolute urgency of now

And if you believe there’s not a tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

We’ll crucify the insincere tonight

We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight

We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight

The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Doomed
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow
June
We’ll try and ease the pain
But somehow we’ll feel the same
Well, no one knows
Where our secrets go
I send a heart to all my dearies
When your life is so, so dreary
Dream
I’m rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils
Scream
And I fail
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will
Mother weep the years I’m missing
All our time can’t be given
Back
Shut my mouth and strike the demons
That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season
Out of love and out of feeling
So bad
When I can, I will
Words defy the plans
When I can, I will
Fool enough to almost be it
And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel this
Always old, I’ll always feel this
No more promise no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me
I just want to be me
When I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will

Pop tart

What’s our mission

Do we know

But never listen

For too long

They held me under

But I hear

It’s almost over

In detroit

On a memphis train

Like you said

It’s down in the heat and the summer rain of

The automatic gauze of your memories

Down in the sleep at the airplane races

Try to hold on

To this heart

A little bit longer

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

For this heart’s

A little bit colder

Try to hold on

To this love

Paperback scrawl your hidden poem

Written around the dried out flowers

Here we are still trading places

To try to hold on

Pop tart

Can you envision

A free world

Of clear division

For too long

They held us under

But I know

We’re getting over

In detroit

With the nashville tears

Like you said

It’s down in the heat with the broken numbers

Down in the gaze of solemnity

Down in the way you held together

To try to hold on

To this heart

A little bit closer

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

For this heart’s

A little bit older

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

And we are still alive

Try to hold on

And we have survived

Try to hold on

And no one should deny

We try to hold on

To the pulse of a feedback current

Into the flow of the cryptic movement

Slapback kills the ancient remnants

That try to hold on

Try to hold on

To this heart

Alive

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

And we are still alive

Try to hold on

And we have survived

Try to hold on

Pop tart

You never listen

Skinned knees

Try to hold on

Stop start

What’s our mission

Skinned knees

Try to hold on

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “That was one of the original riffs that I brought from Chicago when we went to Scottsdale. The problem with a song like that is you’ve got this great riff and then that’s all you’ve got. The riff comes in two minutes. Then you take weeks out of your life being a slave to that riff. We really have a love-hate relationship with the riff songs.” Billy Corgan “The real problem is after that great riff, you need another great riff.” Jimmy Chamberlin

C’mon let’s go

I’ll find you waiting there

Beyond their violence dared

A light around your soul

You could be my friend

Lovely and different

Crushing up the stars above us

A guarantee to spoil our rot

Tears were once my only way back home

Someone speaks and instantly I’m cold

C’mon let’s go

C’mon let’s go

Beyond the great unknown

Beyond their punched-up skulls

To die upon this road

C’mon let’s go

C’mon let’s go

Anesthetized I’m hollow

Playing to the dark back row

C’mon let’s go

Go

C’mon let’s go

Assimilate, it’s all been staged

I’ve made mistakes, they penetrate

They’re gonna take, it’s all the same

They cannot wait, their love spells hate

I wanna love

I wanna love

I’m pushing back

I’m serpentine

I’m pushing back

Lord save me

With need

Lord walk me home

C’mon let’s go

C’mon, c’mon let’s go

Tears were once my only way back home

Someone weeps and instantly I’m thrown

C’mon let’s go

C’mon let’s go

Go

Is it wrong to say

I’m lost in your embrace

Is it wrong to say so?

Within a dream I had, some vista vast

Meant for the poor of soul

Struck from the firstborn

Leapt from a ray of hope

Into a body I once knew

Built a mere kingdom of self abuse

Hitched to some rainbow

Once more, it’s always yours

Once more

The wait hurts worse than the blows

Words buy

New life

Dust clears

No scars

Burnt but

Bright eyed

The sun’s out

A still night stirs

The wait hurts worse than the blows

Is it wrong to say

There’s god and there’s faith

Is it wrong to say so?

Withstood a thought so sad, I had to laugh

Cut from some polished bone

Crawled out of broken homes

Slipped on the afterglow

Into a worry and a curse

Stole from the bible chapter and verse

Stitched to an old sail

Once more, it’s always yours

Once more

The wait hurts worse than the blows

I know

We’re just like old friends

We just can’t pretend

That lovers make amends

We are

Reasons so unreal

We can’t help but feel

That something has been lost

But please

You know you’re just like me

Next time

I promise we’ll be perfect

Perfect

Perfect

Strangers down the line

Lovers out of time

Memories unwind

So far I still know who you are

But now I wonder who I was

Angel

You know it’s not the end

We’ll always be good friends

But the letters have been sent on

So please

You always were so free

You’ll see

I promise we’ll be perfect

Perfect

Perfect

Strangers when we meet

Strangers on the street

Lovers while we sleep

Perfect

You know this has to be

We always were so free

We promised that we’d be

Perfect

Lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Silly, I know I’m silly
Cause I’m hanging in this tree
In the hopes that she will catch a glimpse of me
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she…….?
Lily, my one and only
Love is in my heart and in your eyes
Will she or won’t she want him
No one knows for sure
But an officer is knocking at my door
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she could only see me?
And when I’m with her I feel fine
If I could kiss her I wouldn’t mind the time it took to find
My lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Oh lily, I know you love me
Cause as they’re draggin’ me away
I swear I saw her raise her hand and wave (goodbye)

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “Billy bought this guitar from this guy from Paris (James Trussart) who makes steel guitars and he brought a couple examples of his work to our rehearsal space. Billy grabbed one and plugged in into his amp and immediately started playing the riff from ‘Tarantula’ and the song was written pretty much on the spot.” Jimmy Chamberlin “That’s our nod to the Scorpions, and UFO--a loving nod to the hard rock bands of that era.” Billy Corgan

I don’t want to fight

Every single night

Everything I want is in your eyes

You and me go back

To places I dont know to care

The spoils of all I got were left for scraps

Don’t let me say this

But you’re no worse than me

It’s crazy

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

We are the real

They feel we have enough

We are the real

‘Cause someone gave us up

I want to be there when you’re happy

I want to love you when you’re sad

Cant stand the morning rain?

Get out i’ll take your place then

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

Then close your eyes you’ll see

The angel dust

I dont want to be

Anything believed

A million watts of sound can’t compare

Come along you’ll see the world

The pulse ripples, the crowd unfurls

The current starts to flow and then you’re on

Oh it’s white hot soul they want

To sing for

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

We are the ruin

Of every living soul

We are surreal

Cause someone gave us up

Don’t break the oath

I want to love you when you’re happy

Don’t break this oath

I want to be there when youre sad

Freeze-frame the pouring rain

We are the real

As real as any ghost

So easy now

We are the real

In ever living soul

Oh dont they know?

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

Can’t stand the morning rain?

Oh get out i’ll take your place again

I dont want to be alone

I dont want to be alone at all

If it’s a white hot soul they want

Then a black heart they’ll get

You and me

Meant to be

Immutable

Impossible

It’s destiny

Pure lunacy

Incalculable

Inseparable

And for the last time

You’re everything that I want and asked for

You’re all that I dream

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

Protected and the lover of

A pure soul

And beautiful

You

Don’t understand

Don’t feel me now

I will breath

For the both of us

Travel the world

Traverse the skies

Your home is here

Within my heart

And for the first time

I feel as though I am reborn in my mind

Recast as child and mystic sage

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

For the first time

I’m telling how much I need and bleed for

Your every move and waking sound in my time

I’ll wrap my wrap my wire around your heart

And your mind

You’re mine forever now

Who wouldn’t be the one you love and live for

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love and die for

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

It’s you that I adore
You will always be my whore
You’ll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl you’re the beauty in my world
Without you there aren’t reasons left to find
And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
You’ll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl you’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left to die
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever leave behind
In time
In you I see dirty
In you I count stars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste god
In you I feel so hungry
In you I crash cars
We must never be apart
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl you’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left behind
In time
We must never be apart
And you’ll always be my whore
Cause you’re the one that I adore
And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
In you I feel so dirty
In you I crash cars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste god
We must never be apart

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You’ve traveled very far
Just to see you I’ll come around
When I’m down
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, “scream”)
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?
Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same
I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I’m naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show
And what do you want, I want to change
And what have you got
When you feel the same
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was an only son
Tell me I’m the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire
Right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all
And I don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin’ dues
Down to see
That we don’t even care
As restless as we are
We feel the pull
In the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement
Lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we’d go
Beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now (written: sound)
As you can see there’s no one around

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “That’s a sexy song made by two men living in a house alone together for four or five months in Scottsdale. There needed to be some sexiness somewhere.” Jimmy Chamberlin “That song was another one that I brought to Arizona with me. And right away it sounded like ‘95 Pumpkins, like it could have been right off of the Mellon Collie record. I feel sorry for Jimmy because he has to hear me complain about such things. And we went back to what Flood taught us and tried the song some other ways. One day we just changed the beat, and it just made the song.” Billy Corgan

They say that life ain’t easy

They’ll say your life’s a crime

Destroy up all good reason

How I’m alive

They’ll say that nothing matters

Not even your will to survive

Of course I love you baby

‘Cause I’m alive

Yes, I’m alive

Whenever I call you out

Whenever I draw you round

Whenever is here and now

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way I care

You should call on me baby

I’m always there for you

Yeah, I’m always there for you

They’ll say you’ll lose your nerve soon

To claim identity

Disgrace our sacred promise

With no belief

Oh, how I believe in you

That’s the way my love is, for you

That’s the way my love is, for you!

I feel a coming age now

I feel a dawn in me

A certain sun keeps rising

On my belief in you

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way i care

You should call on me baby

‘Cause I’m always there for you

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way I care

You should call on me baby

‘Cause I’m always there for you

Yeah, I’m always there for you

Day is ending

Birds are wending

Back to their shelter of

Each little nest they love

Nightshade’s falling

Lovebirds calling

What makes the world go round

Nothing but love

When whippoorwills call

And evening is night

I hurry to my blue heaven

I turn to the right

A little white light

Will lead you to my blue heaven

You’ll see a smiling face

A fireplace, a cozy room

A little nest

That’s nestled where the roses bloom

Just molly and me

And baby makes three

We’re happy in my blue heaven

You’ll see a smiling face

A fireplace, a cozy room

A little nest

That’s nestled where the roses bloom

Just molly and me

And baby makes three

We’re happy in my blue heaven

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Now you know where I’ve been

As you sleep, torn I am

Weighted down patiently

Born of love

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Found below, the creatures scream

Stranglehold, a god machine

Begin to tear us out

What is hell

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just the tears inside your head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

We all want to hold in the everlasting gaze

Enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway

But underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog

The fickle fascination of an everlasting god

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting

Forever waiting a cruel death

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living for myself

Forever waiting

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

There you are

As you always were

In bathing light

And naked blur

You’re a part of me

Eternal wone

My grand design

And setting sun

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

Last night I turned around and thought I saw myself turning

Inside the strangest dream of life unloved and cities burning

Awake in my arms

You cry unharmed

Our age of the hours

When they still devour all

So take it all

I doubt if we

Will know it’s gone

Cause we’ve been here

Since time began

Begged god awake

And make these plans

Wound opens

Reveal this broken man

And soon there’s notions

Of blood on his hands

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

Last night I turned around, I thought I saw myself turning

Last night I turned around and thought I watched the world ending

Inside the crushing I felt a pang, the tide was turning

Destroyed in the wake

The jealous ingrates

Will tear this world down

To spite god above

With his own love

With his own love

If you wait

If you wait

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “It started off as this weird little shuffle thing. We were arguing back and forth in November of ‘05 whether we should have a shuffle on the record. Billy wanted a shuffle. So it became a search for a new way to do a shuffle. We were also listening to Fela, all these 14-minute Nigerian jams and watching documentaries about him. So we went down this road of seeing how power can come from repetition.” Jimmy Chamberlin “In Pumpkins logic, if you’re going to make people wait for six minutes for the payoff, the money shot better be good. Ultimately, this became the musical statement of the album. The drum take is one of Jimmy’s crowning achievements. It’s worth the price of admission. Lyrically, the song reflects the decision I made when we were in Scottsdale to stop watching all network or cable news. I noticed the effect that had on me–I stopped being afraid. In general, I’m not afraid of getting on the stage in front of 60,000 people, so why should I be afraid of a plane crashing into my house? I was trying to wrap my head around the way we’re being force-fed a level of paranoia. It’s a personal reflection on what it all means. The ‘revolution’ in the lyrics isn’t the revolution of picking up a gun. That’s never worked, and it never will work. Jesus was right.” Billy Corgan

Rouse me soon

I said my last rights

I don’t have to run scared no more

Fight

I wanna fight

Let me prove something real like I should

Let me embrace every single living thing

That she left behind
Aren’t you tired?
There I walked, speak
If all goes wrong
If all goes wrong
If all goes wrong

But will you leave?
I don’t mind
Well you’ve left this time
For what transpires
To be crouched and quiet
Is me
If all goes wrong
If all goes wrong
If all goes wrong

But will you leave?
Save yourself
We save someone else a kiss
Save what’s left
You save what’s kept
Not this weak

If all goes wrong
If all goes wrong

If all goes wrong

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
